Question about Unison paths

Hopefully some of you out there use unison; the mailing list has been a bit unresponsive...

How do I tell unison to synchronize a path using a (simple) regex (e.g. blah/*.txt)? The docs say 'path' is literal but with things like 'ignore' and 'follow' using patterns, surely there must be a way to specify what to accept using a pattern. At first I thought ignorenot was what I wanted, but that's applied on a global scale. For instance if I want to accept only the files/dirs:


ignorenot would cause problems for directories like .vim (as mentioned in the docs). Thanks in advance.

Official word from the maintainer: regex paths are not supported.
